Against the Bright Sun

What's Lovely for Nov. 4, 2010:

Trying out this new, almost obnoxiously bright coral pink, lipstick. This outfit was something I like to do-- black and white with pop(s) of color. Speaking of pop, I want pop tarts. I know they're terrible for you, but you know what? I'm cravin' me some artificially-flavored sugar, dammit.

Oh yes, it's the return of the just-as-obnoxiously-bright yellow tights. Hello, Banana Legs.

List of Clever Things That Come to Mind When I Try to Write This Post:

- Look at the bow I made, durr hurr, so pretty
- I wore yellow tights with yellow sandals, how clever am I, see what I did there
- Why's my face so weird? Have I forgotten how to pose properly?
- Trees so pretty 
- Herp derp buh buh buh

Not very clever at all, is it? Sadly, no. So I'm going to sign off with a random funny.

Why did I decide to wear dramatically yellow tights today?

For kicks and giggles, of course!

OK, I'll leave quietly now that I've said the worst joke ever. Please don't hurt me.

This is the best thing I've seen all day! (See what I did there? because it's just past midnight? Hehe)

But really, I always love your photos. And your blog. And you. Especially you.

I have the same tights! I love obnoxious legwear. Big fan of those shoes, too.

i like those tights! they look a little acid green/yellow, but i guess they are just neon yellow?

i got a pair of kelly green tights from we love colors a couple years ago, and whoa! they are insanely bright. i pretty much only wear them on st. patrick's day. :P

Happy weekend!

Funny that you have banana legs, I have what some call banana shoes. :D We are banana fellers, hi ho hum. <3

That pop of yellow is amazing, though, especially against all the black and white. FIERCE gurl.

I love your white black COLOR palette. As soon as I saw those tights, I thought those must be from We Love Colors because they are so bright. And awesome.

Omgosh those tights are so so so so amazing. It's like highlighter yellow! Awesomeness :) I love your skirt too!

Also your Halloween post was awesome, I loved all your costumes! But WTF is a Sexy Finding Nemo? That's the weirdest thing ever. And sexy Wookies? I'm just so creeped out. If they ever have a sexy Darth Vader, I think I'd die (not the good Rachel Zoe, "I die, this is BANANAS," but the real "I can't live in a world with sexy Darth Vaders").

Those chartreuse tights are simply jaw-droppingly brilliant. The just perk up your entire look! (I desperately want to inject some of this shade into my winter wardrobe. It looks magnificent with deep blacks and rich browns and it really pops against black and white and gray like you have it here.)
